Don’t let the Ball Touch the Ground!ball-touch-the-ground
(September 2nd) The whole school played together outside. Big beach balls were thrown around with the objective to never let them touch the ground. We also danced, and ate popsicles. What a great way to start the school year!

(September 26th) The entire school went apple picking at Verger Labonté. We were welcomed with a healthy, fresh apple muffin and a glass of apple cider. Each grade then enjoyed a wagon ride into the orchard. Every student was able to pick a full bag of apples to bring home! It was a day full of fun, excitement and school spirit.

Valleyfield CLC: news and notes: The Community Learning Concepts (CLC) approach is the creation and promotion of partnerships which provide a range of services and activities, during and after the school day, to help meet the needs of our learners, their families and the wider community. The aim is to support the holistic development of our students, families and communities.
